governor romney to knock it off. he tried to change the facts. just because it's an inconvenience to your case, it's not change. >> cenk: i has a good argument for his case, is he going to win? is he going to win? we'll find out which way the swing state of nevada is going to go. >> politics and gambling are becoming in incompatible. you can't stay at a trump property. you can't stay at sheldon adelson hotel. you can't stay at steve wynn's hotel either. >> cenk: i love this one. the ridiculous efforts to get black voters. >> it's a big lie that democrats are for black americans and republicans are against black americans. abraham who freed the slaves was a republican. >> cenk: and so was alexander the great if we're going back to history--awesome. and the elbow of the day who's head is it going to land on? you'll love it. it's go time.

change? >> chief political corpondant carl cameron on the move with the romney campaign. he used the president's own rhetoric against him. that's right, harris, since yesterday when he had 20,000 people or more in a major rally in ohio, mr. romney is using president obama's own rhetoric about voting against him. the president suggested that his supporters should vote for revenge mitt romney in colcalifornia spring and dubuque threw that back at the president. >> today president obama it was yesterday, you probably heard about he asked supporters to vote for revenge. i ask the american people to vote for love of country. >> mr. romny -- mr. romney said that over and over and over again in an attempt to cast mr. obama and his presidency as one of division and suggest he will unite the country and reach across the aisle in a bipartisan way. the romney complaint is that president obama made promiseless of hope and change and couldn't deliver. he couldn't because of grid lock that he caused. he simply doesn't have an administration to get things done. >> analyst said it is it like a c
is not the candidate of change and mitt romney is the cand date of change. the president bushing back and tough on mitt romney and said he is recycling old failed economic policies of the past . that is one way to push back and number two. president said in states like ohio there is progress on the economic front. not enough. there is more ways to go. but here is progress. and the unemployment state wide is 7 percent and that is better than the national rate . if they can win here in ohio and wisconsin where the president will be. he will have a midwestern fire wall to prevent mitt romney from getting 270 electoral votes. sunshine state of florida is a key state with 29 electoral votes and most with all swing state in play it is close. latest numbers are showing in a new poll how tight the race is at the moment with the president slightly ahead. but looking at the clear politics average. goch gov romney has the edge. joining us now republican connie mack. great to have you here today. >> thank you for having me. good to be with you. >> early voting ends in the state where the turn out is big and people
. >> a meeting with mitt romney seems to have changed evangelist billy graham view of mormons, he removed references to mormonism as a cult after meeting with him. >> romney took some time in north carolina to visit billy graham. graham told romney that will do, quote, all i can to help romney win the white house. >> though in fairness the 93-year-old graham has said the same thing to his coatrack. so a tip of my hat to the reverend billy graham for disencultfewing more mondayism. folk, i agree, billy graham's web site definition of cult says they are those belief systems that do not adhere solely to the 66 books of the bible as the inspired word of god. and add their special revelations to the bible. well, folk, the book of mormon isn't a special revelation. it is jesus fan fiction. right after jesus comes to america to preach to the indians, he and edward cullen baptize dumbledore. but great, gripping, gripping. but the biggest reason mormons are no longer a cult is that now a mormon might beat obama. and that is great news for other cults. all you have to do to be reclassified as a leg
a look. in 2010 mr. romney wrote, i believe that climate change is occurring. i also believe that human activity is a contributing factor. then, in 2011, mr. romney was running in a republican presidential primary and he changed his answer to, we don't know what's causing climate change on this planet. we also checked his book, what's your thoughts? >> well, look, this fits in what mitt romney has done throughout this campaign. it's clip that you love showing, top line, when he says, i stand by whatever it is -- what i said, whatever it is, whatever i said when i said it. that's exactly what we're seeing here. you know, mitt romney, he answered the question as best he could. he doesn't really want to talk to the person. remember, he said, i know you're filming, just go check out my book, hey, how are you doing. >> we did check out the book. great. rub badge. crystal, if you had any doubts that hurricane sandy changed the race in the last week, listen to carl rove. this is what he tells the "washington post." if you hadn't had the storm, there would have been more of a chance for the rom
the lever for. governor come romney co- opted the message of change. but today he took a turn. remember, president obama talking about there were no blue or red states. only the united states? well, governor romney now talking about being a bipartisan president for all the people. listen to what he said on the campaign trail in dubuque. >> i learned as the governor of massachusetts that the best achievements are shared achievements and i learned that respect and goodwill go a long way and when they're shared, they come back to you. that's how i'm going to conduct myself as president. i won't just represent one party. i will represent one nation. >> what's really interesting is the way the calls for bipartisanship have been met with democrats. harry reid saying there is no way senate democrat also ever work with governor romney, gregg. >> gregg: john, bit of a controversy involving something president obama said yesterday. tell us about that. >> yeah. on the campaign trail, on the stump he likes to say when people start booing against governor romney, he said don't boo, vote. yesterday h
'seconomy, it is all but stagnant. this has governor romney running l as the candidate of change. >> accomplishing change is not just something i talked about. it is sething actually done, and we need to hve someone in the white house who cannot just talk about it, but do it. lo the most recent poll of ohio mirrors those tight national polls. rasmussen reports showing governor romney tied with president obama at 49%. nationally the dead heat can be seenacross a white canvas of polls. e real clear politics bulbuls has the two men separated tonight by a mere tenth of a percentage point to. the rasmussen reports daily tracking poll ha the race at 48%. the abc washington post trackin poll shows the governor taking a one point lead after trailing by one yesterday. those of the two most recent national polls. and while the polls are tight, they are not always accurate or indicative of the of come. either candidate could win this election by a sizable margin, if you consider a sizable margin to be two or 3 percent,perhaps, regardless of what these polls are saying today. one group or demographic, like in
that romney represents change and an appeal as well to the middle class. how effective is that closing argument? >> well, basically he's arguing don't go backwards we want to go forward. that's the theme of his campaign. but we're hearing something also interesting in these closing arguments. both sides are claiming they can deliver unity. that's something that got president obama elected. remember when he first gave a speech in 2004 at the democratic convention he said there's no liberal america, there's no conservative america, there's the united states of america. he's going back to that argument and the terrible storm sandy the hurricane actually helped him make that argument because he got praise from two republican governors of new jersey and virginia for his efficient handling of the relief effort after that storm. so it's helping him make the case that he can bring the country together even though most his critics say he failed to do that. >> that's interesting. here's the thing. even if the president is re-elected, it's not as if the house is going to change dramatically in te
a change for romney, ali? >> well, he does it by approximating to some degree. he does it by saying this state has prospered under a republican governor. look, this is a state that is split. it's a virtual dead heat. obama's got a bit of a lead, but as you know it's within that statistical margin of error so it could be a few points off one way or the other. it will come down to who comes out to vote. the last few days will be about encouraging those who have already decided. there's very little left in terms of evidence as to what you could do to possibly tell people i'm your guy. the question is you are sort of leaning towards me. do i go out and do it. mitt romney has made some errors in the last week or so in ohio, particularly with this issue of jeep and chrysler, getting money in the auto bailout and supposedly transferring manufacturing, having intention to transfer manufacturing to china. that is not playing well in ohio. >> let's talk about how the polls are playing in ohio. it's not possible to overstate the importance of ohio in determining who is going to win tuesday. no
growth? romney has a funny way of showing change, doesn't he? take a look at romney's surrogates toint at his rally. all five of these folks worked in the bush administration. in fact mitt romney's campaign is looking more and more like the bush white house every day. romney even pulled on the the old dick cheney trick of scaring voters before an election. >> the same path we're on means $20 trillion in debt in four years. it means stagnant take-home pay, depressed home values and a devastated military. and unless we change course, we may well be looking at another recession. >> another recession? all economic indicators show the country is in a recovery. but mitt romney has no problem scaring voters if it helps him. president obama called him out on that tactic today. >> right here in ohio, folks who work at the jeep plant had been having to call up their employers because they're worried. they're asking if their jobs are being shipped to china. and the reason they're worried is because of course it turns out it's not true. this is not a game. these are people's jobs. these are people
. romney was also in wisconsin this morning, portraying himself as the candidate of change? >> the question of this election comes down to this. do you want more of the same, or do you want real change? and we bring real change. >> do you want 32 more months of private sector job growth? romney sure has a funny way of showing change, doesn't he? take a look at romney's surrogates at tonight's ohio victory rally. former secretary of state condoleezza rice, former labor secretary elaine chao, bobby jindal, tom ridge and also ohio senator rob portman. all five of these folks worked with the bush administration. in fact, mitt romney's campaign is looking more and more like the bush white house every day. romney even pulled out the old dick cheney trick of scaring voters before an election. >> the same path we're on means $20 trillion in debt in four years. it means crippling unemployment continues. of course it turns out it's not true. this is not a game. these are people's jobs. these are people's lives. the auto industry, they spend a lot of money advertising and branding and letting folks kn
here is the thing, though. we know what change looks like. and what governor romney is offering ain't it. giving more power to the biggest banks, that's not change. another $5 trillion tax cut to the wealthiest americans, that's not change. refusing to answer details about your policies until after the election, that's definitely not change. we've heard that from politicians before. >> again, a glimpse of the campaign speech the president has been giving to supporters all day long as he crisscrosses these battleground states. he is in wisconsin. members of his team has said wisconsin is in play paul ryan, that is his home state. the president giving the stump speech he has prepare and passionately delivering across the country. i want to let you see some other battleground state newspaper headlines. you can see how this playing out at least in some of those papers. first, florida orlando sentinel. get out the vote. smart phones and cab lets are being used as weapons in the final battle. in the new hampshire valley news, they say the state braces for voter id. those who don't have a

is also sure to come is more bitter fighting over climate change. mitt romney drew a laugh at the national convention in august when he said this. >> president obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans, and heal the planet. >> former president bill clinton hit back at those comments this week. >> he ridiculed the president, ridiculed the president for his efforts to fight global warming and economically benphyllo phye ways. he said, oh, you're going to turn back the seas. and my part of america, we would like it if someone could have done that yesterday. >> bloomberg business week had its own not so subtle message to nay sayers featuring this cover story and in a surprise move michael bloomberg endorsed president obama thursday saying the president is a strong leader on global climate change. professor of geosciences at princeton university. he has been studying climate science for three decades now. good morning. thank you for being here. you live in lower manhattan. you saw the storm's devastation first hand. were you surprised by sandy's magnitude? >> well orve, of course,
or judgment with mitt romney because his position changes so frequently. but i think that's the right question. and part of the answer to that is how desperate this toledo jeep ad looked when it's clear the auto rescue has worked here. everybody believes it worked. people forget it was a hard political call three years ago, wasn't a hard call in terms of substance, but a hard political call for congress and the president, but we did the right thing. it was several things. it was bipartisanship back then with senator voinovich and president bush and president obama. it was a partnership between the federal government and local communities and businesses, and we always kept a focus on how do you get manufacturing jobs back and focus on the middle class? that's why it's been a success. that's why it's working politically, and that's, frankly, why governor romney is so desperate in ohio right now. >> one thing i have learned is my jeep came from toledo. i never knew where it came from. now i have to thank the people of toledo tonight for making my jeep. i love it. i haven't had a single problem wi
to be trying to counter as he did in ohio, mitt romney's message about being the candidate of real change. he's been saying to his supporters that mitt romney is not about change, and also he's been trying to urge them to be patient, saying that the economic recovery is on the right track. >> after four years as president, you know me. you may not agree with everything decision i have made, you may at times have been frustrated by the pace of change, but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. >> the insin uation there very clear, the president saying mitt romney is the unknown. now, here in wisconsin when you look at the polls, president obama has been trending ahead by a few points when you look at a number of polls. that's not a comfortable lead for the obama campaign. but it is a significant one. it is a consistent one. and they're trying to maintain that as they move towards election day. and they try to keep wisconsin as well as the other midwestern firewall states, ohio and iowa, in their column, fred. >> and all this while the president says the recovery from the storm is sti
a speech as closing argument, mr. romney indicted his opponent's record >> candidate obama promised change but couldn't deliver it. i promise change, but i have a record of achieving it. >> reporter: and in four days, promised a fresh start. >> i'll lead america to a better place, where confidence in the future is certain, not questioned. this is not a time for america to settle. >> reporter: still, both candidates' electoral fortunes may rest on ohio. >> ohio, i'm betting on you, i'm betting on you. >> reporter: today, accusing mr. romney of running false ads on the auto industry, that implied jeep is moving jobs to china, ads even the automakers dismiss as untrue. >> you don't scare that up, to get votes, do you want a president to tell you what he thinks? or somebody who is going to? still, both emphasize the bipartisan theme. >> i will work with anybody of any party to move this country forward. >> i won't just represent one party, i'll represent one nation. >> reporter: brian, tonight, these rallies are all about energizing the supporters, and driving up support for tuesday. >> peter
is with you? >> then a life changing moment. >> mitt romney is driving. they are coming around a curve in this small remote town. there are six people in the car. >> he went around the bend and he saw that there was a, at a high rate of speed, another person coming right towards him. >> one of the policemen who had shown up as the first responder, if you will, had actually written in his passport 'il est mort,' which means 'he is dead.' >> mitt woke up in a ward, and he didn't know where he was. and then for a period of time, he didn't have any feeling in one side of his face. >> he had survived, but the wife of the mission president, sitting right next to him, was killed. >> you have to understand the mission president was like the surrogate father there. his wife, the surrogate mother, the mission mother. and she was to many of us mother there. and so it was an awful loss for us that she was killed. >> in the wake of the tragedy mitt's friends say he showed surprising resilience. >> i think part of that is because of our faith. a deep conviction that this isn't the end of all life; i
, let's say a president romney comes in. will it change? do you fear, i know you have addressed it in the past, several administrations, that there is just a tone in washington, that makes getting anything done impossible. >> i have been down there a couple of times in the last few weeks and that is the tone and whatever you say, it is hard for the administration to get everything done, they've handed over the keys to the congress and the congress is filled with ideologues, who sacrifice the country to push their own point and you have to hope whoever is the president will be able to walk across the aisle and get compromises and, more important, pick the right priorities. obviously, the fiscal cliff, right, we have to take care of that. beyond that, there are multiple things is that a have to be done about the economy and the most important is having a job-friendly creation opportunity. it is not easy, and wall street, think markets will go up, whoever wins... >> neil: on that, we have seen earnings contraction and a lot of people worried, presage a recession... >> i think we're

yesterday in a bomber jacket in air force one saying romney is not worth the risk. >> after four years as president, you know me by now. you may not agree with every decision i've made. you may be frustrated at the pace of change, but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i'm willing to make tough decisions even when they're not politically convenient. >> let's start by assessing these closing arguments. john, "you know me by know" can work both ways? >> it can work both ways but for this president that's not a bad closing argument. he also got a decent bit of economic news with the jobs report, came in about 46,000 over what the consensus forecast had been. and so he's casting this as we're slowly going in the right direction. we're on the right track. we've been through difficult times. and mitt romney's closing argument is we haven't gone far enough and we haven't gone fast enough. they both have reasonable arguments, hence why they're tied in the polls. gwen: we've heard i am the candidate of change. we've heard it more because barack obama made it such a big de
, don't let mitt romney steal the mantle of change that he had in 2008. he's trying to seize it back and say that mitt romney has got failed policies of the past. take a listen. >> in other words, wisconsin they're betting on cynicism. they figure they can outlast you. they figure you know what? these guys maybe get enthusiastic, but over time, that enthusiasm fades away and we're still here. but wisconsin, see, my bet is on you. [ cheers and applause ] my bet is on the goodness and decency of the american people. >> now, obama campaign officials told us they've reached an incredible milestone. they said they've had 125 million contacts with voters. these are over the phone, in person, door to door. they say that's more than double what the republicans have boasted. so they think what that translates to next tuesday would be really getting on the ground in states like iowa here and getting out their vote. one side will get their vote out. the other is not. we'll see who it is with three days away. >> we're watching. stick with fox news on election night. complete coverage begins here
into the voting booth and change their mind. that they'll go either for romney or for obama based on the hurricane. i do think that you can take the measure of what happened to the campaign process. it kind of froze it in place for a couple of days. and arguably, you can make the case that didn't help governor romney. because he seemed to be on a roll at that point. >> momentum -- >> but it's really hard to know until we start to get the results, and hear what people say about how it affected their voting pattern, and it affected their behavior, quite honestly. i do think that president obama, arm in arm with governor christie, with the kind of picture that the campaign must have said thank you, god, because what that did was say to the country, republicans and democrats can work together, because that's what the country wants to see. i think the united states is more fractured than i can remember. and that's fed, in part, by the ability of people with special interests to, if you will, fan the flames on the internet. which they try to do. division is good for them. they want to pit one interest a
